Out of the Sex Industry & Into the Arms of the Savior
After more than a decade as a victim of the commercial sex industry, Annie Lobert shares not only her redemption story but those of others involved in sex trafficking.
Annie Lobert was not so different from most girls. She grew up in a small town and had common struggles with friends, school, and boys. Her home was filled with turmoil, and, as happens far too often, she was sexually abused by a family friend. She knew heartache, but she didn’t know love. Sadly, Annie’s story is not uncommon.
Feeling unloved, used, and abused as a little girl, Annie Lobert struggled to find self-worth. Lured by the almighty dollar, she was drawn toward the seductive whispers and open arms of the sex industry, believing its false promises of security, adoration, value, and love. From her first stint testing the waters in Hawaii, Annie collected an easy few thousands dollars sometimes for as little as taking off her clothes. Greed consumed her, the money an easy remedy to numb her brokenness. She made her way to the lights of glamorous Las Vegas, where she became one of the most sought-after high-class escorts, fielding calls from celebrities, musicians, politicians, and other men with endless supplies of cash.
But the lights weren’t that bright. All that glitters isn’t gold. And it wasn’t long before the dream of getting all she ever wanted became the nightmare that plunged her into the darkest time of her life.
From her sixteen-year journey being owned by a violent pimp who took every dollar and beat her multiple times within inches of her life, to finding herself behind bars over twenty times, to being raped numerous times, to being diagnosed with and treated for cancer, Annie eventually found herself battered by emotional and physical trauma and at death’s door from a drug overdose. That’s when she finally surrendered to the love of a beckoning Savior.
Today, Annie is redeemed. Healed. Free. Through her harrowing account in the dark clutches of the sex trafficking industry and the miraculous deliverance she experienced in the arms of Jesus, readers will be encouraged knowing that no matter how far you have fallen, God loves you and wants to save you from the depths of any pain, trauma, addiction, or abuse, and to give you a new life.
